Fonda, Hayden at Hill
Anti-war film actress Jane Fonda, and her husband,
long-time activist and former Daily editor, Tom Hayden,
are scheduled '3: appear here tomorrow as part of the
national Indochina Peace Campaign. The two, along
with French journalist Jean-Pierre Debris and singer
Holly Near, will speak at Hill Auditorium, 7:30 p.m., on
the condition of an estimated 200,000 political prisoners
held in southern Vietnam. Their appearance is spon-
sored by an ad hoc coalition of the Student Government
Council, the Inter-Faith Peace Council, and the Program
for Medical Aid to Indochina.
Auden dies
Poet W. H. Auden, considered widely as the greatest
living English language poet, died of an apparent heart
attack yesterday after giving a lecture on his poetry
before the Austrian Society for literature in Vienna. The
British-born poet, who once taught here at the Univer-
sity, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1948.
He was known for his plain-to the point of being pro-
saic-verse, but the depths of expression was there.
Auden once said the only thing he dreaded was to die
an old man from a lingering disease. "When life is be-
comipg a burden you should let go," the 66-year-old poet
commented. "The nicest way, I think, would be a heart
attack. It's cheap and it's quick."
Bring charity home
Charity begins at home-and a number of citizens in
Cook County, Ill., have decided that they'd like the
Commonwealth Edison Co. to begin some charity at
their homes right now. They've filed a $10 million suit
claiming the utility has given at least that much to
charity since 1965 at their expense. The citizens claim
that the donations are included in the company's operat-
ing expense when they request a kick-up in rate in-
creases. Edison says the donations are a "relatively
small" part of the utility's operating expenses. Naturally.
Getting high
Henri Rochatain is walking a thin line-and he's been
walking it for six months. The 42-year-old circus clown
has stretched to six months his record-breaking squat
on a high wire above a supermarket in Sainte Etienne,
France. Rochatain, who has been subsisting mainly on
algae soup, biscuits and tea, began his stay on the high
wire March 28. Nobody seems to have asked the man
why he's breaking his own previous endurance records.
Like cigarette-smoking and biting nails, it's probably
hard to break old habits.
Happenings .. .
. ..are few and scattered for those looking for a good
time today and tomorrow. Music fans might be inter-
ested in the afternoon performance of the Detroit Sym-
phony Orchestra, conducted by Aldo Ceccato, at the
Hill Auditorium at 2:30 p.m. . . . those addicted to
cards will begin their weekly bridge games and begin-
ner's course with the University of Michigan Duplicate
Bridge Club at 2 p.m. in the Anderson Room of the
Union . . . St. Thomas School on Elizabeth Street will
sponsor a clothing sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in their
cafeteria . . . tomorrow, the extension service will spon-
sor its modern painting film series with "Manet and
Cezanne," at 7 and 9 p.m., Aud. 3, MLB.
Republicans' saving grace
Former presidential adviser John Connally received
a rousing cheer at the National Federation of Repub-
lican Women in Los Angeles yesterday for remarking
that only women can inject life into the Republican
party because "I don't look for men to do it." Connally,
apparently newly liberated, added that "Men like to sit
back with their feet up on the desk, holding a coffee cup
or something else and talk about priorities while the
women do all the work."
Price controls, Roman style
Seasons may come - and go, but the price controls
abideth forever. Or at least that's what archeologists
now seem to think. Joyce Reynolds of Newham College
in Cambridge, England, told a recent archeology con-
ference in Izmir, Turkey, that excavations have un-
earthed the best preserved copy so far of Emperor Dio-

cletian's edict on maximum prices-circa 301 A.D. So
cheer up, at least Nixon hasn't ordered the death penalty
yet for violations. Diocletian did, and archeologists have
evidence to show that at least one of these penalties
was carried out.
Soviet superstar
Ile may be gone, but his memory-and voice-linger
on. The Soviet news agency Tass announced yesterday
their latest recorded superstar-Josef Stalin. Stalin, now
dead for 20 years, will be featured on a new series of
records about World War II. It's bound to make a mint
in the Soviet, but tell Bette Midler not to worry.
On the inside .. .
. . . The Sunday Magazine will feature an unlikely
combination of dope and the Salvation Army on its pages
today . . . Frank Longo rehashes that dismal Wolverine
performance on the Sports Page.

LOS ANGELES (Reuter) - Vice-
President Spiro Agnew yesterday
declared that he was totally inno-
cent of charges that he accepted
bribes when he was governor of
Maryland, and declared that he
would not resign his office even if
he is indicted by a grand jury now
hearing the case.
In a fighting speech to 2,500 Re-
publican women, he accused the
highest career official in the U.S.
Department of Justice, Assistant
Attorney General Henry Petersen,
of trying to drive him from office
and of leaking allegations against
him to the press.
General Elliott Richardson defend-
ed Petersen. In a statement re-
leased in Washington, Richardson
praised Petersen as a "distin-
guished government lawyer" and

Agnew's speech, the sharpest yet
made by the Vice-President in his
own defense, was greeted by a four-
minute standing ovation.
He declared that he intended to
go to court and force Justice De-
partment officials to give state-
ments under oath about the han-
dling of the Agnew case.
HE SAID top Justice Department
officials were "trying to destroy
me deliberately through the use
of the criminal justice system of
the United States."
He said he was being subjected

to "a kangaroo trial" through leaks
to the papers and accused Petersen

It was the Vice-President's first
public speech since the charges
against him were presented to a
grand jury last Thursday.
According to published reports,
former close associates of the Vice-
President claim he accepted kick-

be asked, "Why should a Republi-

Republican prosecutor attempt to

He added, "I don't know all the
answers but some individuals in
the Department of Justice have
been severely stung by their in-
eptness in the prosecution of the
Watergate case and that the Presi-
dent had to appoint a special prose-

Punchless Blue edge scrappy

nated by Michigan, running off 75
plays to the Wolverines' 63. And
although no one among the 88,042
Band Day partisans ever seriously
doubted that the Wolverines would
win the ball game, only foolish mis-
takes at crucial moments kept the
Middies from scoring on a number
of occasions.
But in the end, the defenders,
bent to the tune of 320 yards of
Naval offense, never broke; leav-
ing the remaining criticism for the
lackluster showing on the shoul-
ders of the offense.
Denny Franklin engineered touch-
down drives of 16 and 54 yards,
and ignited the largely passive
throng with two long gainers, but
aside from that it was a long after-
noon for the Blue attack.
After the teams traded punts to
open the contest, safety Dave
Brown gave Michiganethe first
break of the game, picking off an
Al Glenny aerial at the Navy 43.
But a clip nullified Brown's 14-yard
return and three rushes could get
the Wolverines no further than
punt formation.
NAVY'S NEXT possession re-
sulted in a costly fumble when
Glenny collided with running back
Cleveland Cooper in the backfield.

AN UNIDENTIFIED IAN watches yesterday with unabashed glee as the undefeated Wolverines roll,
albeit shakily, to yet another victory. Despite this fan's unconcerned air, the game did provide some
exciting moments and proved to be a lot more closely fought than anyone expected. Despite being over-
whelming favorites, Big Blue managed only a 14-0 victory.

The halls of Markley are long

noticeable lack of woodwork and
overstuffed chairs. Despite t h e
